§ Mr. McCabe
To ask the Attorney-General what assessment he has made of the impact of reforms to the Crown Prosecution Service on the performance of the service, with particular reference to(a) the working relationship between the Police and the CPS and (b) the proportion of successful prosecutions. 
Reforms to the CPS following the Glidewell Report are still being implemented. Under its new DPP and Chief Executive, the CPS is making good progress, but key recommendations such as those concerning the relationship between the Police and CPS remain under consideration at this stage. I hope to be able to make a further announcement soon.
